Two 'T' Fruity

Today is Bi Visibility Day, also known as International Celebrate Bisexuality Day.

Today is International Celebrate Bisexuality Day, the day when not only bisexuals but also pansexuals get their moment in the spotlight.

Pansexuals can feel desire and enjoy relationships with people of all gender identities and biological sexes. That includes people whose gender and biological sex are not straightforwardly either male or female.

While Bi Visibility Day has some way to go to reach the profile, of, say, Pride, it is a big event. We will be marking it with a Two 'T' Fruity, one of the most palatable 'sweetie' cocktails we've come across.

Feminist Icon Born

The first female presidential candidate in the US entered the world on this day in 1838. Aged 34, only a few years after Lincoln was assassinated, Victoria Martin ran for president as a representative of the Equal Rights Party.

And this wasn't Victoria's only first. She was also the first woman to start a weekly newspaper and the first to run a Wall Street brokers' firm - and she did all this after leaving school aged 11, one of 10 children of an illiterate mother.

A passionate advocate of women's rights, in particular the freedom to marry, divorce and take lovers at will, Victoria made her first fortune as a magnetic healer, and a second in business. And, though she never made president, she's an icon for equal rights campaigners even today. We are toasting this extraordinary lady with an aptly-named Foxy Lady - which, as it happens, she was.
